10:10 am
utilized government equipment everything from paper shred ers to storage cabinets and police boats and even at one time helicopters and at this time we've been able to locate 13 forklifts and property supply areas as well as some of our specialized units and they come to us initially at no cost from the government and after 1 1 year in our possession they are turned over to us to use as we see fit either to return to the government at no cost or penalty or reallocate or sell if we desire so a great saving estimated at 226 at $226,000 worth of forklifts that we get at no cost. >> 13 seems like a lot of forklifts just curious about
10:11 am
the number. >> sure. the way these are stockpiled by the government they are told to us they are available but without any real detail on the condition of the forklifts we have a short window to inspect them for use ability and so due diligence said we take them all and see which ones we need for parts to make the others whole and if they are not all in proper working order we can turn those back in. >> do you have any questions? >> vice president turman? >> sergeant matthews can we also allocate to other agencies. >> the equipment is did i differently classified for their use and for the first

10:14 am
recommend you watch it and unfortunately i want to point out it's 5 years and over a million dollars too late. imagine the pension he's going to get because you promoted him after a crime and that teaches other officers that the way to get a promotion is by breaking the law. 5 years ago the castro was operated under the aegis of a corrupt supervisor and police officer and extortionist jane warn er and those are the 3 leading lights of law enforcement in the castro five very very long years ago. there has been an improvement but it hasn't been fast enough and it hasn't been nearly
10:15 am
enough. okay. the shooting that happened about 2 weeks ago -- of the poor mr. perez lopez and covering for one of their inform ants who were criminals. they had 3 officers went to the federal pen because they were dealing with criminals and went to the pen because they were dealing with criminals and became criminals. we all know the mission station is the most corrupt station in the city and we all know the undercover cop program there has been given a hard look by these feds and they are still look ing. have you notified the feds. i've got a lot more i'll come next week or the week after. thank you.
10:16 am
>> any further public comment? >> hello. my name is paulette brown. i'd like to use the overhead. i'm here concerning my son and his friends called him cheddar and he was measured by a semi caucasian by a semi automatic gun and to this day still no justice. his case is a cold case. i have the name of all the perpetrators that murder and that was there and involved with my son being murdered. anthony hunter and one of these is deceased. these are the names that i got
10:17 am
and these are the true names of the perpetrators that murdered my son they are still walking the street one of them is thomas hannabal and he has a comedy show somewhere and he's living his life as though he never done anything. and my son , his body, his birthday is next month, april 6th and this is what i have to celebrate. this is the life that i have to celebrate. no life. i can't stop this. this is my therapy to come here and keep my son's memory alive. this is not easy
10:18 am
for me, but i will continue to do it again, these guys names are on my son's file is the perpetrators that were going to shoot another young man. see these names, look them up, get them off the street. i'm afraid for my children that i have left. who is to know if these guys might be looking at me. they might see what i'm doing every month or every week and i don't care you took everything from me. you took my son. he was my only son and i grief every day and i don't care if it's been 8 years. i i need justice for my child. there are so many unsolved
10:19 am
homicides out there. my son is one. these cases need to be solved. these men need to be off the street not to murder again. >> thank you miss brown and again there's a 250 there's a $250,000 reward into the investigation into into the murder and chief correct me if i'm wrong i think the anonymous tip line is there and please come forward to tip line is anonymous. thank you miss brown. >> further public comment? >> good evening commissioners, chief, everybody out there my name is jacki bryson and i'm very happy to see you back at city hall. i was one of the
10:20 am
uninformed and i did come last week and that's okay i got to look at the door. in any event, i want to thank you again for coming to the tenderloin and south of market and commissioner commissioner hwang got to see -- 6th street which is where i have to walk. wasn't it kind of scary cautioning up there. i want to talk a little bit about 6th street today because i'm hoping the police will do something to make it less scary. on the corners of 6th street and howard we have a lot of vehicular bicycles and cars bad behavior where if the police were stationed there they might be able to struck might be able to instruct people via ticket that this is the wrong thing to do. sometimes that's
10:21 am
the only way to get the point across to people that's very educational to have a ticket that you have to pay and yesterday i was speaking with a motorcycle police officer who has a lot more patience than i do there was a jerk on a bike riding against traffic and he nicely but firmly said you are going the wrong way and the guy continues to ride and we're talking about he's in the left turn only lane going the wrong way on howard street and turns and says to the officer -- thanks girl if that had been me i probably would have shot him and that's one of the reasons i don't have your job and he didn't do anything and he didn't swear at him and anything and yeah this is the kind of guy we want working in the police department and the person eventually got onto the sidewalk and drove about 20 feet more and back only the the street and so whoever that officer was thank you so much for keeping your cool other
10:22 am
officers who kept their cool were those at project homeless connect today and a lady was determined that she was going to get her california picture id even though the best we could do because the d.m.v. cancelled without telling anyone was to give her a voucher to go get this and she raised such a ruckus and the officer was his usual cool calm and collected self and i'm keen on pj and she got hustled again the second time and i said officer pg is this the second or third strike for her? i don't know the end of that that story but nobody lost their cool and i think that speaks very well of the san francisco police department. >> thank you miss bryson further public comment? welcome. >> hello. my name is larry and i like to be called edmund
10:23 am
juicy and i'm very tired i want to thank -- i mean gascone chief he said he's going to be doing a lot more work with sro hotels and black woman's sons who have been shot in the city and i thank god he knows something that's going on in our hotels and i'm also here to say i'm really looking forward for our police officers in san francisco to get the cameras i hope we're going to be a city that will have cameras very soon and i'd like to see the police walking up market street and it says one of these weekends it's saint patrick's weekend and new year's and i'm tired and i just really want you all to have cameras and i
